Appropriately, I said "Oh Shit"

And how was your day?

********************************************
Having some DDR issues. The main one is time. It used to take me half an hour to become an exhausted, sweaty, jelly legged lump of goo. Now it is taking upwards of two hours. I set my "Calorie Goal" at 200 today. I did it with no problem, about an hours worth of DDR. So I did another 200 "Goal". I quit because it was time to make supper, not that I was too tired to go on. That's about two and a half hours, straight.

The second, and most disconcerting problem I am having is that I have gained six freaking pounds. In a week. WTF? 95% of my cups of coffee are black now, because I cut the cream and sugar out of most of them. I stopped snacking just to snack, and only eat when I am truly hungry and I am freaking DDR'ing every day. I don't want to gain weight, I want to LOSE weight!

I think you're turning fat into muscle. Muscle weighs more.

And yeah, I hate when the trash bag breaks.

When loosing weight stay away from the scale for the first 3 week and account for muscle gain. Best time to weigh yourself is in the morning naked and after you did your morning bathroom duties, naked. Then say to you self with your eyes closed 10 times "I'm as light as a feather". And imagine that you are light than you are and try to feel light.

Hey, don't cut out the snacks either. When I dropped my big weight load, I snacked. Fruits or veggies mostly, but I still snacked. They say if you watch the portions, and pick healthy choices, you can eat up to 6 times a day and still lose the wieght. Did you go to the Canada Food Guide yet? Download it, it had healthy eating choices and the issues you are haivng in there.

But the way is that Tigger's mess??

Best way to determine whether you're muscling up is to measure yourself. Overall, you should rely on those numbers more than the scale. The weight itself is not terribly important; it's what that weight is made of. Lean muscle mass weighs more than fat, as others have said.

The fact that it's getting easier is a great sign. It means you're getting fitter!

One other thing: Make sure you are eating enough. If don't, your body will think it's starving and hang on to the fat.

Oh, and the healthy snacking (and that means snacking, not meals) a couple times a day in addition to regular meals (yes, you need to eat regular meals, no skipping!) will ensure you're getting enough calories to sustain your activity level.

I eat 5-6 times a day; it's how I went from a size 12 after baby to a size 6. And I've been that way for about 7 years.

And the snacks/eating helps your metabolism...I'm a terrible eater - once a day or so, & cannot lose weight no matter what. I go visit the parents & kids, eat 3 meals w/ snacks, I lose.

maybe you're just gaining muscle?

Finn Ok so where do I measure? Just the places I want to see improvement? how often do i re-measure? Are you going to hit me with a stick for being annoying?

Finn I have to cut out most snacks because i gravitate towards chips or chocolate, not veggies or fruits. what else qualifies as a healthy snack? I really need to get that food guide thing!

FlipFlop Honestly, I thought you were just being mean to me. I can accept seeing the numbers rising on the scale as long as that means my tummy will eventually lose some of its fat.

Tug Oh trust me I deffinatly eat three meals a day. but snacks and me are bad together!

WebMiz One can hope, eh?

I was going to say it's probably muscle... keep working at it. and don't forget to drink your water, eat your fruits and veggies!

But you've already read all that!

Hey

you didn't gain 6 pounds in a week that's impossible (of fat anyway).

are you doing only DDR if so maybe try to add some interval training.
if you want help let me know I've been there and I know how to keep it off. lost over 45pounds. and I am on my next goal to enter the wrold of fitness.
stay positive! everyone has bad days.

You are losing fat and gaining muscle, which means you are losing inches. You should have measured yourself before you started. That's the real way to gauge progress.

Oh, and that picture...that so sucks. I have done that before.
